Abstract: Over the past fifteen years, a growing number of universities have begun to examine their respective institution's involvement in slavery. However, such research has yet to explore whether, and if so, how this historical context may play a role in contemporary Black students’ college experiences. In this talk, Garibay will share results from a pilot survey conducted at a Southern institution with a historical involvement in slavery. He will discuss how Critical Race Quantitative Inquiry and Anti-Blackness literature were used to devise a methodology to (a) measure various ways students respond to an institution's history of slavery, and (b) explore factors that may relate to student responses to the institution's slavery history. Lastly, implications of the preliminary findings for quantitative research in higher education and the higher education reparations movement will be discussed, as well as next steps to expand the study.
